Twin Harbors Opens 3 Days of Razor Clam Digging

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW)Razor clam diggers can return to Twin Harbors beach for a three-day opening that begins Nov. 26, state shellfish managers said today. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the opening on evening tides at Twin Harbors after marine toxin tests confirmed clams from the beach are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed before noon.Diggers had plenty of success last weekend at Twin Harbors, said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “Not only were most folks digging their limits but they were harvesting some good-sized clams,” Ayres said. The upcoming dig is approved at Twin Harbors on the following dates and low tidesNov. 26, Saturday, 4:47 p.m.; 0.5 feet; Twin HarborsNov. 27, Sunday, 5:24 p.m.; 0.2 feet; Twin HarborsNov. 28, Monday, 5:59 p.m.; -0.1 feet; Twin HarborUnder state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2016-17 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://www.fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.Long Beach remains closed to razor clam digging due to elevated levels of domoic acid. A natural toxin produced by certain types of algae, domoic acid can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities. More information about razor clams and domoic acid can be found on WDFW’s webpage at http://www.wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/.last_img read more

Tuesday’s Children Nurtures 9/11 Healing

first_imgBy Judy O’Gorman AlvarezThis Friday, when the crowds gather at the new World Trade Center to honor and read the names of nearly 3,000 people who perished on Sept. 11, 2001, Kevin Parks will be elsewhere, getting ready for the commemorative gala he is chairing the next day. He’ll take time to remember his father, Bob, who died in Tower One that day. “I find it helps to keep myself distracted that day.”Parks, 28, who works for a hedge fund and lives in New York City, was a freshman at Red Bank Catholic that day in 2001. He remembers hearing the news about the terrorist attack in the classroom with one of his best friends, Brian Morris.Fourteen years later Parks and Morris, as well as fellow classmate Megan Swift, are members of the Junior Board of Tuesday’s Children, a nonprofit aimed at fostering longterm healing in families directly impacted by the events of Sept. 11.The idea was to help the families, especially the children, with life. Unlike many of the charities and organizations that provided money, gift baskets and immediate support, Tuesday’s Children concentrated on developing relationships, mentoring and staying involved with the families, especially the children.“I didn’t get involved right away with Tuesday’s Children, although I knew about them and participated in some events,” said Parks. But as he grew older and “grew up,” he said he thought about ways he could “give back.” “I felt I was ready.”“What helped me the most – and my family – was not just the friends of the family and neighbors that helped, but also total strangers,” said Parks, who lived in Middletown, where his mother still resides. “To get that support was inspiring. It helped in the healing process by restoring our faith in the power of our community.”A few years ago he helped form the Junior Board of Tuesday’s Children, made up of young professionals who coordinate fundraising events and volunteer opportunities. The board works to serve the needs of the 9/11 community of families and first responders and helps the new generation of families and children as they transition into adulthood.“Now that many of the kids who were helped are growing older, we’ve shifted to offer college and career counseling and mentoring,” said Parks. The group holds seminars and workshops on college prep, internships and careers among other events.For the past few years Parks has been paired with fellow Middletown resident Rodney Wotton, 14, whose father Rodney died on 9/11 – seven days before Rodney was born.Star ting out slowly, Parks and Rodney have formed a friendship – attending sporting events and even visiting the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum together. “We’ve been to Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, arcades, miniature golfing, a cooking class – and some of the best pizzerias in New York City,” Parks said. “I hope he gets as much out of the relationship as I do.”Tuesday’s Children have joined together to volunteer with a wide array of community service initiatives, including helping with recovery efforts after Super Storm Sandy, setting up a Resiliency Center in Newtown, Connecticut, after the Sandy Hook elementary school tragedy, and assembling care packages for veterans. In addition they offer crisis counseling, workshops on life management skills, as well as Take Our Children to Work Day and holiday parties for families.The Junior Board’s event Rise Up Downtown, a commemorative gala to benefit Tuesday’s Children on Saturday, Sept. 12 will be held at Broad Street Ballroom in New York City. Parks and his committee hope to raise more money to help fund the ever expanding goals of Tuesday’s Children.“I’m trying to repay the debt of gratitude I owe Tuesday’s Children. I’m proud of my association with the charity and l want to help it any capacity,” said Parks. “We are here for the long-term.”last_img read more

Jharkhand Food Minister orders exhumation of 65-year-old’s body after allegations of death by starvation

first_imgJharkhand Food Minister Saryu Rai on Saturday directed the Latehar administration to exhume the body of a 65-year-old man for post-mortem in the wake of allegations that he died of starvation three days ago. Reports published in a section of the local media have claimed that Ramcharan Munda, a resident of Lurgumi Kala village in the district, died of starvation on Wednesday after being denied ration over the past two months, a charge denied by the administration. Talking to reporters here, Mr. Rai said that he has taken a serious note of the allegation and directed the administration to follow strict protocol while carrying out an investigation into the case. “If the reports are true and anybody is found guilty, he or she will be punished as per norms,” he said, adding the probe would cover all aspects in the case, including the allegation that Munda did not receive ration for two months. He appealed to the Opposition parties to refrain from politicising the issue. Meanwhile, the Sub-Divisional Magistrate of the Mahuadand block in the district, Sudhir Kumar Das, asserted that Munda did not die of starvation and that his family gets all facilities entitled to it. He also said the local ration dealer died three months ago, and his wife has taken charge of the public distribution system in the village.Cash, rice given “The administration had issued instructions to maintain offline records for distribution of ration following reports that poor internet connectivity is hampering transactions over point-of-sale machines. Munda and his family were given ₹2,000 and 50 kg rice,” he added. Several political leaders have reached out to Munda’s family after reports of his death surfaced in the local media. Sources said local members of the Shibu Soren-led Jharkhand Mukti Morcha have given the family 50 kg rice and ₹5,000 cash. Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) general secretary Bandhu Tirkey, who met the bereaved family on Saturday, expressed hope that the government will take necessary action in the case. “The Food Minister takes such issues seriously. I expect he will take action soon,” he added.last_img read more

Report: Duke-Michigan State, Indiana-UNC Highlight 2016 ACC/Big Ten Challenge Matchups

first_imgacc big ten challenge logo.Twitter/@TheBuckeyeNutA pair of rematches, one from the 2015 Final Four (Duke-Michigan State) and the other from the 2016 Sweet 16 (Indiana-North Carolina) are the headlining matchups of the 2016 ACC/Big Ten Challenge. CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein tweeted out all 14 pairings this evening. Michigan St at Duke headlines the 2016 ACC/Big 10 Challenge. Complete matchups via @JonRothstein … pic.twitter.com/OQNsxUQcmF— Chip Miller (@BLUEChip_Miller) May 23, 2016This will be the third meeting in as many seasons for the Spartans and Blue Devils. In November 2014, they clashed in the Champions Classic in Indianapolis before squaring off again at the Final Four in the same city in April 2015. Duke owns the overall lead in the series, 10-2, with MSU last registering a victory in the Sweet 16 of the 2005 NCAA Tournament.Indiana leads the all-time series against North Carolina, 8-6, but the Tar Heels thrashed the Hoosiers 101-86 in the Sweet 16 in Philadelphia in March. The last time these two teams met in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, the Hoosiers blasted the Heels, 83-59 in 2012. Besides these two games, Syracuse-Wisconsin, Notre Dame-Iowa, Virginia-Purdue and Louisville-Ohio State also look like intriguing matchups. No wonder this event is always entertaining year in and year out.last_img read more

Billy Joel Helps Nassau BOCES Long Island High School For The Arts

first_imgLegendary musician and Long Island native, Billy Joel will speak with students at the Hillwood Recital Hall in Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post, on February 8, 2016, for an “Afternoon of Questions & Answers… And a Little Music” to raise awareness of the Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) and encourage enrollment.The students will come from both LIHSA, the only public high school arts program that serves students from across Long Island, and Long Island University. Other attendees will include superintendents and prospective students.Joel, a strong supporter of the arts in public schools, wrote a letter in November 2015 to the Nassau BOCES Board expressing his support for LIHSA’s continuation. The Syosset-based arts program is funded by student tuition from public school districts. Enrollments have been declining for the last several years due to the New York State property tax levy cap.Good teachers have made an impact on Joel. “I went to public school on Long Island and I am grateful for the music program and my music teachers for helping provide me the tools for which I have based my career,” Joel wrote in the letter. “I understand that closing this school does not mean the end of music and arts programs on Long Island, but it does indicate our willingness to abandon a school that has been there for 40 years rather than build it up into something Long Island and New York State can be proud of.”Joel has donated $1 million to help the cause.He hopes that his support will bring awareness to the need for rigorous arts education options such as LIHSA. The afternoon promises to be freewheeling and fun-loving. Joel will be spinning yarns, playing music and offering snippets of advice to the aspiring musicians in the house.LIHSA instructors, who are all working professionals in the arts, focus on cultivating their students’ talents and building skills towards a career pathway in the arts. Major focus areas include dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts. Learn more at www.nassauboces.org/lihsa.last_img read more

Japanese drug maker Takeda to buy Irelands Shire

first_imgTOKYO – Japanese drugmaker Takeda has agreed to buy Shire for 46 billion pounds ($62.4 billion) in cash and stock, one of the biggest deals ever in the pharmaceuticals industry, the companies said Tuesday.Takeda will pay the equivalent of 49.01 pounds in cash and stock for each share of Shire, based on Takeda’s closing share price on April 23, the day before a preliminary deal was announced.Shire gives Takeda a larger presence in the U.S. and expertise in rare diseases, an increasingly important area for pharmaceutical companies as patents on established drugs expire. Even though Shire’s headquarters are in Dublin, it earns more than two thirds of its revenue in the U.S. on drugs like Adderall, which is used for ADHD.Takeda, meanwhile, has like many Japanese companies been expanding overseas to compensate for slowing growth at home. Last year it bought Ariad Pharmaceuticals of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Takeda is valued at about $34 billion and makes almost half of its sales in Asia, and about a third in the U.S. Among its top sellers are Entyvio, used to treat ulcerative colitis, and cancer drug Leuprorelin.The deal recognizes “the strong growth potential of our leading products and innovative pipeline,” Shire Chairman Susan Kilsby said.The share price in both companies rose on the news — Shire’s by 3.6 per cent to 39.96 pounds, and Takeda’s by the same rate to 4,638 yen.Takeda obtained a $31 billion bridge loan to help finance the deal, a fact that had unnerved some investors before the deal’s announcement. Takeda pledged Tuesday to quickly reduce the debt and maintain the company’s investment grade credit reading.“Shire’s highly complementary product portfolio and pipeline, as well as experienced employees, will accelerate our transformation for a stronger Takeda,” Christophe Weber, Takeda’s president and CEO, said in a statement.Shareholders of Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. and Shire Plc will each own about 50 per cent of the merged company. The company will trade in Japan and New York.The companies expect to complete the deal in the first half of 2019.last_img read more
